Salve Regina University Annual Cultural and Historic Preservation Conf

Salve Regina University
Newport, RIUni
10/12/2018 - 10/13/2018

Online registration is open for our cultural and historic preservation conference (October 12-13, 2018). This year our theme is Community Preservation through Adaptive Reuse. Adaptive reuse is a strategy commonly employed by preservationists, architects, and planners to extend the use-life of historic buildings and sites. Perhaps because it is not as readily measurable as financial benefits, the ability of adaptive reuse to strengthen community relationships and identities and to build resilience is often overlooked. Despite the lack of attention, adaptive reuse has the potential to be a powerful form of place-making that promotes community solidarity.  Taking this perspective, historic buildings and sites are seen as more than fabric. They become richly layered "texts" that combine material and non-material cultural narratives of a community's past, present, and even future.  In many cases, the range of narratives associated with a particular building or site is as diverse as the community itself, which has the potential to create a shared sense of history.


We have assembled two days of presentations by preservation academics and professionals from across the country, as well as a keynote address from James Lindberg, Vice President of Research and Policy at the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In addition, there will be tours of exciting adaptive reuse projects across Newport. We have also significantly restructured our fees to make the conference as accessible as possible.
